Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


We're a community of designers, engineers, and product managers who are passionate about building quality software. Our environment is collaborative and relaxed, and as a result we build products that are well considered and well architected.

We're hiring talented Full Stack Engineers who want to build ambitious products using modern tools. "Full Stack Engineer" can mean many things. At Postlight, it refers to a person who can build entire front end web applications and deploy complex services to the cloud that support those applications.

We ship, and we ship often. Millions of people use our products, and we support them for years. As a result, we care deeply about code quality. The thought process behind a line of code is just as important as the line itself. We review pull requests and love having discussions about how solutions can be made DRYer, clearer, and safer.

We use the right tools for the job. That means that we're always evaluating ways to work smarter and faster and get the maximum amount of joy out of the job. The result is that we use modern tools on a modern stack.

Interested?

Below are two types of applications we build frequently: a modern frontend application and a modern backend API. We’ve listed example technologies we use for each part of the stack. The more apps you’ve built using the technologies below, the better fit you are for Postlight. We don't expect applicants to have experience with every technology below. Many of our current full stack engineers have learned skills from this list on the job.

  • Languages: JavaScript via Babel

  • Type Systems: Flowtype, TypeScript

    Position Overview: The technical engine behind our work is ITEP’s Microsimulation Tax Model. Developed in 1996, the model computes the revenue yield and incidence of federal, state and local taxes, including both current tax law and proposed tax law changes. The model is unique in its ability to produce analysis at the federal and state levels and to analyze income, consumption and property taxes.

    We seek a Senior Software Engineer (Full Stack) to join ITEP’s creative, passionate and productive staff team as our Lead Tax Model Platform Developer.

    As the Lead Tax Model Platform Developer, you will begin working with an existing Python code base and complete the migration of the model from a legacy platform to the new Python platform. Completion of this project will set up ITEP’s tax model in a sustainable web-based environment, preserving our current model’s functionality and generating sufficient flexibility for longer-term development of content and user-driven enhancements.

    Beyond the platform migration, ongoing responsibilities include timely problem-solving to adapt the platform to respond to frequent tax policy proposals and changes, improving the efficiency of the platform to make users more productive, collaborating with our senior economist to integrate updated data, and developing a lengthy product roadmap (including external facing products that make our model accessible to state and national partners).

    This role reports directly to ITEP’s senior economist and works closely with the entire policy analyst team.

    Responsibilities

    • Lead front and backend technical development work as part of the reconfiguration of ITEP’s microsimulation tax model—currently based on legacy Visual Fox Pro (VFP) code—to a Python web app (built on the Django framework) to be deployed on an Azure platform.

    • Lead the technical development, integration and iterative improvement of ITEP’s tax modeling capacities.

    • Communicate clearly with multiple constituencies, soliciting and digesting feedback from both technical and non-technical users.

    • Ensure that all code development, data handling and version control are done efficiently, securely, transparently and in a manner that improves user productivity and timeliness.

    • Support documentation of ITEP’s model processes.

    Opportunities

    • Contribute fundamentally to ITEP’s mission as a progressive tax policy organization.

    • Interact with the software development communities, representing the high quality of engineering work at ITEP.

    • Opportunities to deepen your technical architecture skills or develop technical management skills based on your career aspirations.

     Required Experience and Skills

    • Three to five years of experience as a full stack software engineer.

    Specific experience with:

    • managing cloud deployments (e.g., Azure, AWS and/or Google Cloud);

    • managing Python web app development;

    • designing server-side and client-side architecture;

    • optimizing database function and management (ideally PostgreSQL);

    • using object-relational mapping (ORM).

    • Ability to manage two or more concurrent projects, working both independently as well as with a team.

    • Ability to effectively communicate with non-technical users, responding effectively to user needs.

    • Ability to write effective technical documentation.

    • In addition, other helpful (though not necessary) experience would include having worked remotely on a software development team and having developed and deployed software for governments and/or nonprofit organizations.

    Start date: Preferred start date is August 2019.

    Location: Flexible. ITEP is located in Washington, DC, however we are open to hiring a remote staff member for this position. Remote staff are required to travel to DC a minimum of 4 times a year.

    Work Schedule: Full time

    Salary: $70,000-$90,000

    Benefits: Generous package including 100% coverage for health and dental premiums; vision, disability and life insurance; paid family leave; flexible sick and vacation leave; 10% salary paid into SEP IRA retirement plan; and other ancillary benefits.
